Worcestershire County Museum free open day

Museum’s free open day

LOCAL history lovers are being invited to a free open day at the Worcestershire County Museum at Hartlebury to mark its re-opening.
The museum was closed throughout January, but is scheduled to open on Friday, February 1, with a free open day for visitors wanting to view the refurbishment changes.
Unseen 19th and 20th century costumes have been displayed for all visitors to marvel at following refurbishment work to the museum’s display area.
The area will also re-display the costume and archaeology galleries which include the Hartlebury Half Crown, minted at the castle during the Civil War.
Admission to the museum normally costs £4 adults, £2 children and concessions and £10 for a family ticket (two adults and two children). It will be open as normal from Tuesdays to Fridays from 10am until 5pm and at weekends and bank holidays from 11am until 5pm.
Worcestershire County Museum is housed in the servants quarters of Hartlebury Castle, home to the Bishop of Worcester since the 16th century. The site has been owned by the Church since 850AD and a manor house was built here as early as the 13th century.
